my golden road was first time hearing Box of Rain


Today’s daily dose of the dead is the song “The Golden Road to Unlimited Devotion” from the March 18, 1967 show at the Winterland Arena in San Francisco. The song cuts in but this is a great song and the only live version I have. This is also the first time the dead ever played this live and they only did it 3 times.

I have heard great live versions of this by the Other Ones, Ratdog and Phil & Friends. This song is also played often during inning breaks at Fenway Park.

Of course the song describes well the devotion that many of us have for this music. For me the “Golden Road” was hearing the album Terrapin Station for the first time and then my first show on 1/10/79.

A really nice rarity for this Saturday!

“Well, everybody’s dancing in a ring around the sun, nobody’s finished, we ain’t even begun. So take off your shoes, child and take off your hat, try on your wings and find out where it’s at.”


BadBadNotGood are pushing to the forefront of modern music. Whether it’s doing interpretations of infamous thug emcees such as Gucci Mane or of 90’s legends A Tribe Called Quest, rap music has never sounded so different, so fresh, yet so familiar.
